When you said you were leaving tomorrow
That today was our last day
You said there'd be no sorrow
And you'd laugh when I walked away.

But a little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not to make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down.

Well, I said I'd laugh when you left me
Full of funny as you went out the door
You said you'd have another one waiting
To wave goodbye as I go.

But a little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not to make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, everything went out like I planned it
Yes, you really put on quite a show
Well, I've thought that I was gonna stand it
Oh, when I walked to the door.

Oh, a little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not to make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down.

A little bitty tear let me down.
A little bitty tear let me down...
